This POLIZIA Lamborghini Has Been Pulled Over, Ticketed Repeatedly, and Towed the Past Three Weeks

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Do you remember this one, from last month?

If You Want to Look Like an Italian Police Officer, Just Paint “POLIZIA” on the Side of Your Lamborghini Gallardo, Like This

I do.

Good times.

Well, since then, this vehicle has been making waves, you know, getting pulled over by the SFPD, getting ticketed by SFMTAMUNIDPTSFBC meter maids (Tough People, Good Jobs), and getting towed outta Chinatown like a beached whale.

And you know what the little people, the tiny topolino, those boring, mousy types who can only dream of being piloti di Lamborghini  or a sexy-time lover of piloti di Lamborghini, you know what they do? They whip out their cell phones and then post photos to the Internet.

Fucking haters!

As here on Market last month, via my Samsung Galaxy Note II phablet:

And here’s an effort from Lulu Vision a few days later:

But there was no ticket issued for this particular yellow zone violation. Lucky Devil!

Now speak of the Devil, El Diablo, here’s a list of recent citations issued for this whip by the SFMTA:

02/13/13  T37C STREET CLEANING  $62.00
02/25/13  T202.1 PRK METER DOWNTOWN  $72.00
02/28/13  T37C STREET CLEANING  $62.00
03/01/13  T38C WHITE ZONE  $98.00
03/02/13  V22502A OVER 18 IN. FRM CURB  $57.00
03/02/13  T38C WHITE ZONE  $98.00
03/02/13  T38A RED ZONE  $98.00

Of course the cops don’t care about you parking in the yellow zone when they’re pulling you over, as here on Kearny. Also via Lulu Vision:

Hey look what came out of the Lambo –  it’s a quarter ounce of medicinal Mary Jane plus a quarter gallon of medicinal luxury vodka.

Good times. Good times for 32-year-old Mr. Cheng.

(Good thing that vodka was capped, Brother. Anyway, the SFPD let him go with a ticket.)

But getting towed from the front of the Chinatown McDonalds because of corrupt Rose Pak’s Chinese New Year’s parade, well that’s the limit, am I right, people?

Via Angimm11

I’ll tell you, I don’t know if this kind of exoticar lifestyle is sustainable.

Well let’s the driver of this car can Go Forth And Sin No More…

San Francisco is Italian Car Paradise: Alfa and Lambo

Did a Community College Student Buy Dennis Rodman’s Gold Lamborghini to Drive to CCSF Every Day? Here It Is

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Why would you paint the top half of your Lambo in flaked gold to make it look like a bowling ball?

This vehicle, spotted in San Francisco’s Chinatown last week, is an abomination:

Click to expand

So Dennis Rodman bought this 2004 Lamboghini Gallardo automatic and then he spent $15,000 to paint the top half in gold flake after an accident and then he sold it last year for $80-something in order to make child support payments?

And then a City College of San Francisco student obtained it as a daily driver to get him to the Main Campus reservoir parking lot each and every day for both the Spring and Fall semesters of 2012?

Really?

OMG. (Please note the tell-tale green CCSF parking sticker in the windshield.)

Let’s hear from a Toyota-driving CCSF student earlier this week:

“saw this lambo today at the school parking lot (ccsf). in fact, it parked 3 cars away from me. easily the most expensive car at ccsf…”

This car is all over town these days, C-Town, J-Town, Upper Haight, Lower Haight, all over.

And just think, when the owner gets around to registering this car (use tax, baby – $7k), that’ll pay for the education subsidy he’s getting by being a stu at troubled CCSF.

Hurray!

Here’s CA plate 6SUG286 during happier times with DR, back in aught-five, back before he accumulated a million bucks worth in unpaid child and spousal support.

Anyway, mail in your photos, gentle readers, when you see this ride about town.

In closing, go CCSF Rams!

Sometimes I just don’t know.

Note front license plate where it doesn’t belong.

Note temporary registration in the window from LA County right next to Spring 2012 CCSF parking decal – whoops.

Again, sometimes I just don’t know.

Why is It That the 99% Pays the CA DMV for Auto Registration But the 1% Ferrari Lambo Crowd Doesn’t?

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Here’s the 99% in Lane 2 – no apparent problems here:

And here’s what’s in Lane 1 a few miles down the very same freeway  - it’s YAFWR (Yet Another Ferraro Without Registration):

Do you know why the richers of California tend to go without license plates on their Ferrari and Lamborghini and whatnot? Well, it’s because of the cost.

Buying a Ferraro like this one to tool around on the weekends for a little while will run you $20-something thousand in “use tax” whether you drive it a little or a lot. So what you’ll need to do is to make some arrangement with your cheesy exoticar dealer – if you think about it for a while, you’ll figure something out.*

And the Tax Man prolly won’t catch you.

So that’s why the 99% pays the CA DMV for auto registration and the 1% Ferrari / Lambo crowd does not.

*Oh, it’s a race car, not a regular car. Oh, as soon as I bought it I took it to, let’s see here, Nevada? Yeah, Nevada. As a 1%-er, I live in the crappy, windblown, high desert of Nevada instead of gorgeous California – do you buy that? Oh, that was a repositioning trip, and, you know, I hated it. I don’t actually like the job of ferrying Ferrari about, it’s such a burden. Oh, it’s…  

Lamborghini Schadenfreude! Italian Exoticar Towed With Extreme Prejudice From the Apple Store Red Zone

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

You know why you almost never see Lamborghinis with licence plates on the back in the 415? ‘Cause when you register them in CA, it costs low five-figures, baby.

And that’s a lot of scratch for a toy.

(Of course, if you want a sexy, imported, Lambo two seater for a little cheaper, there’s always the tandem Viaggio bicycle, right?)

Now, take it away Andyi – here’s an accounting of the fuss in Union Square last night:

I dunno. There’s something about a expensive supercar being towed from a no-parking zone with the same care and indignity as a Toyota Celica that makes you smile and take photos. One thing worries me, though. This is:

1) A super-expensive car,
2) With no license plate,
3) Parked illegally,
4) Outside the Apple Store.

I’m 10% sure that I might have just missed a Steve Jobs sighting.

(Aside: another demo of the Nikon P7000′s special super-high-sensitivity shooting mode. The feature really shines in street shots like this one, where there’s enough light to see by but not enough to get a good shot from a normal camera. Apart from the low 3-megapixel resolution, there’s really nothing wrong with this shot. I tweaked it a little bit in Aperture, but no more than I’d adjust a shot I took in bright sunlight with any other camera. It was more or less fine as-is.)”

Japantown is Even More Fast and Furious During this Cherry Blossom Festival Weekend

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

This is how Post Street looked today, full of customized cars, as the third day of our 2010 San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival began.

Hondas and Nissans were the order of the day, but there were exceptions, like this black Lambo for instance:

Sunday, April 18, 2010 will be the biggest and best day, complete with a parade, an anime costume contest, the works ‘n stuff.

See you there!

San Francisco’s Presidio – National Park or Lamborghini Proving Grounds?

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

The answer is this – a little from Column A and a little from Column B.

Look for this black Lambo barking around the Pacific Heights part of the Presidio.

Or, if the driver gets into trouble on an Army-engineered, seriously reverse camber curve, look for this car among the Eucalpytuseses, and then on the pages of WreckedExotics.com.

Click to expand.

Now I know it doesn’t make sense to drive around in your Lambo on the gridded streets of regular San Francisco, but it also doesn’t make sense to aimlessly drive around the winding streets of the Presidio neither. If the Eucalyptuseses don’t get you then the Federales will.

You’re not on what they call a “sustainable journey,” just saying.

The Unregistered Lamborghinis of San Francisco County

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

The thing about San Francisco is that it’s crawling with oddly registered or unregistered exoticars. The kind of California license plates that come on Toyotas or Hondas seem to have a hard time sticking onto the rears of Ferraris and Lamborghinis in this town.

This aging Lambo Gallardo (the Spanish word gallardo translates into “gallant,” and from Italian into “striking”) typifies the breed. No license plates, but the infamous get-out-of-jail-free C.H.P. 11-99 Foundation license plate holder, well, natch, you’ve got to have one of those, right?

And the radar detector hanging in the windshield, that’s just the icing on the cake.
